Yes, read it right. The chances are high that we are going to see a young version of Batman in the movie which is being directed by Matt Reeves. We all know that there were reports suggesting that Matt Reeves wants to bring a younger version of Batman in his movie.
Ben Affleck isn’t going to be Batman anymore the movie, The Batman is going to hit theaters sometime in the summer of 2021. Another thing that is confirmed is that a younger star is going to come on the screen.
According to Variety, there are reports that Matt Reeves wants to cast a young star for his movie but Warner Bros instead, want to bring a little bit older Batman in the movie. So, it is going to come down on the decision which both parties are going to make at the end.
It has been clearly stated by Matt Reeves that his movie isn’t going to be based upon the comic Year One by Frank Miller and has left fans thrilled and shocked too. The new version of Batman is going to come on the big screen as Reeves wants to bring something new to the character and in an interview last year, he said,
“Year One is one of the many comic books that I love. We are definitely not doing Year One, We’re doing a story that is definitively Batman though, and trying to tell a story that’s emotional—and yet is really about him being the world’s greatest detective and all the things that for me, since I was a kid, made me love Batman.”
Also, reports from The Hollywood Reporter hint towards the possibilities that the filming of the movie is going to kick-start from this November. A reporter of THR suggested,
“The script is basically in, although Reeves will continue tweaking it and working on it. And I’m hearing the studio wants to start shooting in November. So let’s say between now and then?”
